      I'm not really too knowledgeable about the entire exhaust system so I'll let someone else comment on your proposed setup but I believe that a certain amount of back pressure is required to maintain peak engine efficiency. I suppose as long as you maintain the current level of back pressure it should not affect the performance.:dunno:

      I think this setup is better than a replacing the resonator with straight pipes...thoughts?

      Has anyone taken out the front large resonator and put a magnaflow X-Pipe muffler (Pt # 11378)? I did this on my G35 coupe back in the day when it had a loud obnoxious exhaust and it actually tamed the exhaust, made it a lot more deeper in tone, took away 90% of the rasp and made it sound sexy lol. I see some people have taken it off and used the regular X-Pipe, but I haven't seen anyone use this one yet.

      Also, has anyone verified if the Gibson axle back exhaust works with the Ex Sport? I am looking a budget friendly exhaust mods and I think a mix of the X-Pipe muffler and the Gibson exhaust it would really awaken the Sport.

      That’s the muffler X-Pipe I’m referring to. He went one step futher though and took off the back mufflers. I’m looking to add some performance mufflers at the rear as well and not eliminate them. Maybe I’ll throw on some magnaflow one’s as well if the Gibson axle back exhaust doesn’t fit rhe X-Sport. Can any confirm or deny if the Gibson fits the X Sport or not?

      I removed the secondary cat and resonator and replaced it with a "cheap" 2.25" x-pipe from Amazon but left the rear mufflers and honestly the small bump in deep tone is very nice. Sorry I didn't upload a video or pictures. I've read mix reviews regarding the Gibson axle back exhaust system so don't know how good they are or sound. I would rather go with a Flowmaster, Magnaflow or Borla mufflers.

      I’ve heard videos of people with the magnaflow exhaust and honestly I couldn’t tell that they had an aftermarket exhaust on it from the YouTube video. After a quick search I am liking the Flowmaster 50 Delta Series. I want “better” performance and able to cruise around stealthy, but somewhat get noticed when I mash the throttle. I want a deep and rich tone that hints at I have something under the hood lol. Nothing loud or close to being raspy. I’ll keep searching and see what I can find. Only had the car for a week now and I’m wanting to go mod happy with it haha.

      I agree with you on how mellow the Magnaflows sound. There's another video on YouTube with an Explorer and Flowmaster's.

      Not much performance is gained if any by replacing resonators, mufflers, or cats. Most of the performance gain is from the piping itself to increase the exhaust flow.

      What do you guys think about Bourla exaust system? I saw a video on you tube, it did not sound much more louder but the guy said that there is no drone on highway speeds. Since the truck already feels fast enough for me on regular street driving, I am looking at exhaust options and a CAI. I cant even really hear that engine when I rev up. I just want the engine and the exhaust so that I can hear in what ecoboost 3.5 is really all about.

      Look up the videos posted by Jon Noriega on YouTube. He has a Borla system on his Ex. It should give you a real good idea about what you can expect.

      @jonnoriega has posted those videos along with some review info on this site, too. A search for "Borla" should point you in the right direction.

      Thanks @Eric F

      Here's a video of my Borla a week after I installed it. I also shot a video outside of the cabin as well. I'll shoot again after a few more months. I hope it helps.

      Can someone help with information on how to just add a MUFFLER (Borla, Magnaflow, Flowmaster, etc) to the new 2018? Those dual tips on the back may be an issue.
      Can someone help please.

      I am tuned and very happy, just want to increase the sound on my 2018 Sport.
      Thanks,
      LCL

      I think you have to wait until one of Borla, Magnaflow, FlowM comes out with a muffler for Ford 18 as it has dual tips.
